You have been out on a run and somehow pulled a calf muscle, tendon or maybe even trapped a nerve but you are literally days away from an event and you need help so that you can still participate in your sports event.

You have scoured the internet or even heard that a sports massage can help and so you have found this page. So does sports massage work and what is involved.massage-yateley

Well firstly lets just say that if you look to any of the elites they will (in majority) tell you that sports massage is a must or even “an essential part of my training”. Mo Farah, Usain Bolt, Lauren Fleshman and so many other elite sports people tend to use sports massage as a daily part of their training regimes and it is no wonder why.

The human body is to some degree like a machine and needs maintaining correctly so that you can get the best out of your body. Imagine without food or water our bodies would simple cease to exist after a certain time. But, with the right diet and rest as well as the correct methods of exercise our bodies will perform at their optimum levels or to the best of our abilities.

Sports massage is a way for us to alleviate the aches and pains that are associated with the sports that we are active in. It does work but it depends on lots of factors like the type, frequency and even the quality of the massage. There is a lot of studies online some that are negative and some that are positive and some that even claim that massage only works because of the psychological effects.

I truly believe that it works and would be more than happy to explain how so why not give me a call today on 07784 147955 to find out more.
